5 tingkat services that offer less oil/salt and no MSG, so you can have a healthy meal without leaving the house

You may or may not know what the term tingkat actually means, but we at Daily Vanity are 300% sure that you have at least seen it before. Chances are, you probably have a grandparent or older relative who has even used this regularly, and it may even have become intimately associated with your childhood.

Mangkuk tingkat, meaning “levelled bowls” in Malay, are metal tiffin carriers that were widely used a few decades ago as lunch boxes or simply as a means to bring dishes around in an efficient and convenient manner.

They have generally been substituted by plastic containers at food stalls and hawker centres when you want to buy a dish to-go. However, the term tingkat is still commonly used to refer to a form of meal delivery scheme offered by caterers, consisting of different dishes every day for variety and usually spanning 2 to 3 weeks.

Tingkat delivery combines the two things that us Singaporeans love best: good food, and being time-efficient. Most of us would know the headache of deciding what to eat for dinner, how much to spend, or the dread of having to go home and prepare a meal after a very long and tiring work day. This problem is only exacerbated if you are health-conscious and are attempting to adopt a healthier diet.

Tingkat meals also tend to be healthier than eating out, as they usually consist of simpler dishes that remind us of home-cooked food. Many tingkat caterers are also committed to preparing their dishes in a healthier way, without using as much salt, oil and MSG as you might find in a restaurant – just like how our mothers would have preferred it for us. We have sussed out a few healthier tingkat options for your consideration. No more fussing about the inconveniences of eating healthy!
